I have a STB and I do not want to invest in another $700+ unit. I have the DirecTV oval dish installed to two rooms. Does the B55 (or B50) by Sony allow me to send a HD signal via the 9-pin connection to my decoder?


Thanks.

No.


Your sony's don't show a picture on 199 right? just a black screen? This is because your sony doesn't understand an HD signal. So it can't pass on the HD to your set top box. You must get the $450 toshiba to do this. (or other models.)

Partially correct. The B55/50 can understand any DirectTV signal it gets, unfortunately the firmware ( and hardware limitations) dose not allow it to be passed via the data port.
